STANTON — A Crystal man was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison last week for sexually assaulting a relative 16 years ago.
Delbert Scott Patterson, 48, pleaded guilty Sept. 26 to two charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC).
The female victim was 14 and 15 years old when the sexual assaults took place from 1995 to 1997 at the Crystal Township home where they both resided.
The victim is now 30 years old. She did not tell anyone about the sexual assaults until recently when another relative reported similar incidents involving Patterson.
Patterson was sentenced Thursday in 8th Judicial Circuit Court to from six to 15 years in prison on both counts. The two sentences will run consecutive to each other.
The Michigan State Police Lakeview Post investigated the crimes.
